I honestly think that the best way to approach what to read first and second and so on is precisely an *unsystematic* way.
The Torah itself, and likewise the Talmud, are not overtly systematic. In this way they imitate life. Children pick up language and knowledge in bits and pieces, and that's a good way to do things. That's how Rabbi Akiva picked up his Torah knowledge, organizing it all in his head after it was stored away in there.
So I suggest that the best approach to the Torah library should resemble the common approach to a giant dessert table: Taste and much on what strikes your fancy!

Where to start? (Million of thanks for the course)
I was and I am inspired to read, by I am lost after two years to non-systematized reading. Reading from the very beginning does not work and I cannot really find a source. Please, advise what should I start from?
Yes, I didn't have any Jewish education but still believe, it is never late to start.
Many thanks for the course, I want more.

Please, please make more courses like these. The classes were enjoyable, incredibly informative, and very well done. Dr. Chigal was a superb teacher. Please do identical format on, say, Breshit or Talmud. Love them!
